A man was shot and killed by a neighbor after he broke into a fourth floor apartment from the balcony, San Antonio Police said.

The incident happened around 11:30 p.m. Sunday at The Flats at Big Tex apartments in 400 block of Blue Star downtown.

Owner of iconic SF Chinatown business jumps in to protect tourist after brazen daytime attack
Surveillance video shows the moment when a San Francisco business owner jumps in to stop an assault on a tourist from escalating by showing his concealed carry weapon and scaring the suspect away.

By Dion Lim
The owner of a popular Chinatown business is being hailed by his colleagues after jumping in to stop an assault on a tourist from escalating.

The incident happened Saturday afternoon outside Chinatown’s iconic Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory. A man in a black sweatshirt singles out one of about a dozen tourists and attacks. ABC7 chose to blur the man’s face since he has not been arrested.

“The guy just pushed real quick…he did the first push real hard,” says Kevin Chan, co-owner of the business that’s been in operation since 1962.

Kevin, recounted the turn of events, “The guy asked the Black guy, ‘Why did you push me?’ The Black guy said, ‘because you stared at me two blocks away!'”

    Really? A .380 named “Thunder”?
    I could see any caliber starting with at least a “4” being called “Thunder”.
    Wouldn’t a more realistic name for a .380 be “Pop Corn”?

    Curry combing the countryside like Senator Jim Lane and Captain “Redlegs” Terrell after The Outlaw Josey Wales looking for FGS. The elusive trifecta for our Brother WW is…well…elusive. My opinion on their scarcity is the abundance of herd thinning going on with a certain demographic killing one another off as if their lives don’t matter. A LOT of those. And A LOT of examples similar to the San Fran story where that same demographic takes its entitlement to be disrespected to a new level every day. BZ to the business who showed restraint in not shooting that parasite on society.

    From the article. “Baby Browning”?!? DaHell. Pffffft! Speaking of Josey Wales….”Now spit!” Messrs Walther AND Browning are spinning now; one for the outright theft of his design, the other for the comparison of a pop corn fart to a real rip snorter, using his name (Howitzer be it)

      The Baby Browning was chambered in .380. It’s not an odious comparison. That magazine disconnect is easy to remove, too. And this size .380 is a great gun – far more accurate and controllable than the LCP/P3AT class, and at a similar price point. Probably one of the more underrated guns on the market.
